There are various apps out there to help you keep up with your favorite sport team, and today we’ll be looking at one app in particular, namely SportScore. Although the name states “Sport”, it only offers Soccer matches from English clubs, so it may not fulfill your expectations.
As soon as you open the app for the first time, you are prompted to sign in with your account. As it’s likely you don’t have one, you will obviously need to create one. While inconvenient, this allows you to save your selected teams and fixtures if you decide to use the app on a different device. It should be mentioned that you can also log in with your Facebook account.
Other then that, you are free to go ahead and start using the app. It is simple enough to go right in without a tutorial.
The app is designed to be used for keeping up with what’s happening in the world of English Soccer clubs. You are able to bookmark upcoming matches, select your favorite teams and generally be able to see what’s up with your clubs of interest. Live scores are fed into a dedicated panel, and provide scores as the game is played.
The simple UI is relatively enjoyable; the banner advert at the bottom is perhaps the biggest inconvenience, and I could not find any way to remove them with in-app purchases. Putting your phone in airplane mode will not help as the app unfortunately requires an internet connection. There is also a ‘Save’ button that appears permanently in the view, instead of just when you are saving any changes you made to your subscribed clubs. Otherwise, results are posted quickly and accurately, and I found the app easy to use. It will certainly come in handy for any fans who keep a close eye on clubs like Liverpool and Manchester United.
Is it for me?
Only if you are a supporter of English football. The clubs are all based in Britain, and is really ideal if you are the right person.
What we liked:
- Simple UI
- Wide range of actions you can do with the app
- Ability to keep track with your account
And not so much..
- Annoying ‘Save’ button
Granted, if you like English football clubs, SportScore is likely to bring convenience to your daily life. With a host of handy features, you’re guaranteed to never miss a score and always know who is on top of their game.
